- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons fresh coriander, chopped
- oil (for cooking)
- cooked wild rice, for serving

- In a medium bowl combine the tomato paste, Tandoori paste, lemon juice and yoghurt.
- Thread a chicken tenderloin onto each skewer and place the skewered chicken pieces into a glass or ceramic dish (Tandoori paste may stain plastic containers). Spoon the tomato paste mixture over the chicken so that it is well covered. Cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

- Serve the chicken on a bed of wild rice with the sweet carrot yoghurt and warmed Indian bread, such as Roti or Naan.
- NOTE: Tenderloins refer to the small tender fillet attached to the underside of breast fillet.
Wow, this was good. I especially liked the Sweet Carrot Yoghurt. I used all of the chicken breast. I couldn't find any tandoori paste, so I used some vindaloo paste Vindaloo Paste (Indian) that I keep on hand. I'll definately make this again.
